Being a landscape architect, this tour was really cool. It was great to get out of the city and visit this home/botanical garden. 40 acres of plant collections and some nice structures Burle Marx's house and party pavilion. The only downer was that the tour was given in Portuguese and our English speaking tour guide couldn't keep up with the translation.

Very efficient and friendly. They were waiting for us in the receiving area and escorted us to the car upstairs waiting. On the way to the hotel Greg pointed out things of interest and gave us advice on the city. Well done

Operator confirmed pick-up location and time a day ahead. Monica is an excellent tour guide with lots of knowledge and experience in Rio de J. English was very good and she also spoke Spanish and French for benefit of others which was very much appreciated. Went out of her way to ensure we got great pictures at all sites visited. Used her experience to get us to the head of long lines to avoid waiting. Good value, highly recommend this tour.

Fantastic Trip

star-5Susan_M
Ancient Rio and Santa Teresa Tour | Mar 2020
We have recently undertaken this tour with two amazing persons. Alejandro the tour guide and Greg our driver. We didn't know what to expect on a very very busy day in Rio. It was carnival week so you can imagine what it was like. Rio was rammed with people. Alejandro met us at the cruise terminal. We must say we were very apprehensive at first when Greg started to drive through some of the roughest parts of Rio. We were told not to film which didn't put our anxiety to ease. But after this we thoroughly enjoyed our four hours tour of Rio. These two Gentlemen are amazing. They took us to place that you could never find on your own. Alejandro English was excellent even though he didn't think it was. He explained things in details and told us of his experience of living in such a busy city. He took us to a park that he said not many people knew about. It was below Christ the Redeemer. The view was sensational. You could seen all the major sites of Rio. We also had a pleasant surprise of a helicopter flying around CtR and landing feet from where we standing. Even Greg the driver was amazed. He said he had lived in Rio all of his life and didn't know this park existed. Greg …...he is the best driver we have ever had anywhere in the world. How he didn't hit other cars or the drunken masses roaming the streets, we will never know. All the time we felt safe with this man at the wheel. He even took us down a narrow street that was nearly vertical. His driving skills are amazing. This trip was one to remember and we would like to thank you both for such a great four hours in your company. You are a credit to what you do. We would highly recommend this trip and if possible use these two gentleman. Thanks Greg for the bottle of drink you gave us......we haven't tried it yet but we soon will

Bad organisation with this tour

star-2Frankie
Rio de Janeiro Carnaval Champions Parade | Mar 2020
Unfortunately the evening was rained out and that made the experience very unpleasant as there was little shelter and it truly poured with rain. However, that was not the problem as you always take a chance with the weather. Our tour quide was totally inadequate. She did not give us ANY information about the Carnival and what was going to happen. She just dropped us off with no explanations of where we were and what to expect. No information about drinks and seating. The pickup times, for after the event, and location of pickup, were vague and not accurate. My husband left early as he was so drenched and arrived at the location for the designated pickup at 12AM. He waited in the rain for 30 mins but no bus or tour guide turned up and he had to search and pay for a taxi to return to our hotel. On leaving the event at 2.30AM for another designated return trip, the guide had changed her position, but we were lucky that we spotted her. Given the overwhelming amount of people and the size of the event, the information should have been concise, accurate and adhered to. Bad organisation from this tour operator!

Wasted time in Rio

star-2Robin
Ancient Rio and Santa Teresa Tour | Feb 2020
Our guide Teresa(?) was 15 mins late. Her English is wanting and heavily accented. She sat at drivers side and spoke without mic mostly to the front so we did not hear /understand much of what she said. Then she did not narrate much on the places/scenes of interest. Very often we had to ask her what it all was. She started saying it would be a 4-hour tour. The drive was slowed by traffic and blockos due to the carnival and we only made 2 stops, once near the peak for pictures and the other for restrooms, only because we asked. The entire cruise felt like a drive through. We did not even see the famous staircase. Finally at the end of 3 hours we were dropped back at our hotel. It was not a disappointing experience and we all felt like we had wasted our time having travelled thousands of miles to Rio.
